Today we’d like to introduce you to Dominique Liverpool.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
Growing up in the inner city of Baltimore City and being raised by a single mother that was strung out inner addiction. I was blessed to have an uncle that took interest in me to get me involved into sports. I was blessed to at college on a scholarship for basketball, I blessed to attain my degree in Criminal Justice and my Master’s In Criminal Justice and Legal studies. I started working on my business plan or goal while working at Old Court Middle School located in Baltimore County. Seeing these kids come to school day in and day out with no clean clothes, hungry, homeless, abused and neglected by their parents and families. I wanted to give back in anyway possible so I can up with the idea of opening my own business Transitioning and Uplifting Inc.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
No roads are smooth, especially trying to open or start a business from the ground up. There were many obstacles working two jobs for one, two trying to find the right location. Three paying for everything out of pocket with no other money coming just a paycheck every two week. At times you want to give up because you feel defeated, but the work and efforts keep you going because you are able to see the progress in dreams or goal coming to life.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
I’m the founder of the business my role is to oversee the organizational structure of the business making all components are in sync. Also, my role is to try grow the business by adding new programs building partnerships in the community with the courts, police, and other businesses. I’m known for being very patience, easygoing, and very giving to help someone. What set me apart from other people is I’m not too big to the little things that got me to where I’m trying get. Example, if I have to ride and pick clients up in my car or company van, I’m doing it. I’m most proud of my employees and my clients because everyone here is like family and that’s most important because it builds the foundation that a lot of other business lack because own lose their way because of the money.
Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
My business focus on mental health and behavioral services ranging from substance abuse services and psychiatric services for children and adults.
